Columbia Lamp­light Tours Dec. 1-2

Riverbank News - - ADVERTISER -

COLUMBIA — Columbia State His­toric Park and Friends of Columbia are stag­ing the an­nual Lamp­light Tour.

Par­tic­i­pants will be guided through the dec­o­rated town dur­ing the walk­ing play while lis­ten­ing to snip­pets of the town’s hap­pen­ings. Do­cen­tled Lamp­light Tours will run Fri­day, Dec. 1, and Satur­day, Dec, 2, be­gin­ning at 5:30 p.m. and leav­ing ev­ery 15 min­utes. Tick­ets are on sale now.

This year’s pro­gram ti­tled, “The Ladies’ Gift” re­volves around the year 1861 where a friendly com­pe­ti­tion be­tween the two newly formed fire en­gine com­pa­nies has de­vel­oped. Ru­mor has it that a special gift of ap­pre­ci­a­tion is to be pre­sented to one of the fire com­pa­nies and is anx­iously an­tic­i­pated at any mo­ment. Par­tic­i­pants will be led by kerosene lan­tern down the streets of Columbia to visit var­i­ous vi­gnettes in a walk­ing play. Pur­chase tick­ets at http://www.friend­sof­columbi­ashp.com/lamp­light.html.

A lit­tle his­tory and, of course, a lit­tle com­pe­ti­tion, make this year’s per­for­mance sure to be a hit! The tour will end with mu­sic, danc­ing, and re­fresh­ments in An­gelo’s Hall.

Each vi­gnette was cre­ated by the Do­cent Ar­chives and Li­brary Com­mit­tee with in­put from other vol­un­teers and park staff. The script takes hours of time and thought­ful­ness to cre­ate a work that all ages and back­grounds can en­joy dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son.

Tick­ets are adult (18 and over) $25, Ju­nior (9-17) $15, and chil­dren 8 and un­der are free.

Lamp­light week­end pack- ages are also avail­able and in­clude a one night stay in the City or Fal­lon Ho­tel, two tick­ets for the Lamp­light Tour, and a bot­tle of wine. Prices are per cou­ple: $109/Pe­tite Room, $149/Par­lor Room and $159/Bal­cony Room. We will take care of mak­ing your reser­va­tions for din­ner and the tour.
